The Kargil’s sub-district, Zanskar is among the most untouched and remote places of Ladakh. It is one of the least gathered places in Kashmir. You can access Zanskar only from a frozen river while trekking. Due to the remoteness of Zanskar, the traditions and culture of the locals remained untouched. The lifestyle in this place is rich in culture and tradition and is very colorful. The locals live semi-nomadic lifestyle and they keep cattle. The largest town here is Padum with the smallest population of only 700 to 800 residents.
